Journal Article

Abstract


  • The number of truly drug-resistant hypertensive patients

    is small if careful attention is paid to blood pressure

    measurement, lifestyle measures are instituted and treatment

    is adjusted as required. An effective drug combination for the

    treatment of resistant hypertension is an ACE inhibitor (or

    angiotensin II receptor blocker), a calcium channel blocker

    and a thiazide-like diuretic, with possibly the addition of a

    fourth drug.
